Has the high price of gas impacted where you live?

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Platinum Properties

I recently filled my gas tank to the tune of over $ 70. My average daily commute to the office and to my clients is around 30 miles a day. Naturally that is not counting additional miles for showing and previewing homes. Of course I thought immediately about the thousands of folks who commute 30, 40 or more miles ONE WAY EACH DAY. How do you manage the increased cost of commuting to work? Has the thought occurred to you that possibly it would be worth spending more on housing if you lived closer to work? In other words, if the cash is going out of your pocket anyway, why not save the hassle of a bumper to bumper commute and put that money into the cost of a more convenient housing option

If you work in Orange County but live a good distance away and commute daily, looking at Orange County homes may be the right move for you.

Gas just went down for us, a reasonable $3.76 a gallon. I also just got an economy car...only $40 to fill :)

Shannon: Must be regular gas. Good for you about the new car. I see plenty of commuters in SUVs driving to Corona etc. Yikes!

Sylvia - I do agree moving closer to work will be a growing trend.
